I Feel Like I've Been Run Over by a Bus

Here's why:

  1. I went to the Casual Blogger Conference '10 for 2 full days and I think my brain came very close to exploding from the sheer volume of good ideas flowing into it. Really good things. Plus, I got to sit next to my friend Amy (the lady who teaches me to raise {Super Healthy Kids} even though I still feel no guilt for feeding my children a diet consisting of large amounts of ketchup, I am working on that)  and she makes me laugh hard. I don't think I should laugh that hard, you know, bladder control, and all.
  2. Dan and I ran in the Memorial Day 5K race in his cute little home town. We stuck together the whole time and we finished respectably. I'm proud of us. Then we ate back all the calories we burned at the city pancake breakfast. Yum. The whole town loves to see Dan eat so they give him a gigantic stack every year.
  3. To get to the 5K on time, we had to get up at 5:30 this morning. I don't like doing that. No one should ever have to get up before 7.
  4. I'm still awake right now. It's after 11.
  5. I've been losing sleep over this earring craft for church camp this summer. But I've finally got it all ready. Now I can think about other things, like why no one has cleaned the kitchen in a few days (am I the mom? am I supposed to do stuff like that?)
  6. I was introduced to so many amazing blogs at the conference, I've been trying to catch up on a lot of fantastic thoughts people post on the internet. Blogging is really an incredible concept if you think about it. Anybody can publish and pretty much anybody can read it. Power to the people.
Well, I'm going to go sleep now and hopefully recover some of my mental and physical capabilities. 
What did you do over the weekend?

I went to the CBC!! And met lots of amazing bloggers... you included. 5:30 is entirely too early, even for something respectable, like running a 5K.

Moved books. Char's books. From my house to her new house. Thousands of them, one tiny box at a time.

I'm glad I didn't go. I'm already loaded up with as many people as I can be responsible for. Hell may also be defined as too many delightful choices to handle.

sounds like a great weekend, and I do hope you'll be sharing the CBC secrets soon!

How fun!! I'm so glad you got to go to the CBC. And by the way, I totally agree with you on not getting up until after 7:00. Even 6:59 is just wrong. I actually got my kids their own bedside clocks when they were old enough to recognize numbers and told them they couldn't wake me up (or was it couldn't come out of their rooms?) until the first number said 7. That's how serious I am about that. ha Great weekend for you--way to go on the running! As far as what I did over the weekend... I went to Boston. I'm just about to post on my blog...

I hope you'll share some of these amazing blogs! And tell us more about the CBC. Way to go on the 5k!

That is so fun that you and Dan did the 5K together. I want to do that sometime.
We went to a little parade with friends in the morning yesterday. It was quaint and fun and included candy being thrown from cars, fire engines and floatish things. Heaven for kids.

You should link us to some of those things you found at the CBC. I bet you had a great time. I'm glad you got to go, you deserve it you lovely girl!!

I love you! Seriously, you are so great. I love reading your blog. I laugh out loud a lot.

Congrats on running the 5K. That is awesome.

Anyway, you are amazing.

What the CRAP?? I cannot believe you never mentioned the 5K-- CONGRATS!!! Those are things you need to brag to me about- deal? Also- I don't know if it was my stuffy nose or what, but I couldn't smell the popcorn... What a day... I hope you are sleeping right now-- sleeping- that is something I should be doing too......

the fellers said...

Megan, it was great to meet you! I'm so glad you came to our panel. Thank you for all the sweet things you said.

My Snuggie and I are still recovering.
